Experience one of the most unexpected survival stories in modern history. Read the first-hand account of Sir Ernest Shackleton as he takes you through the grand trials and tribulations of being marooned in the Southern Ocean for nearly two years. His original plan was to trek across Antarctica, a feat that had yet to be achieved. The turn of events that should have ended in tragedy is worth reading time and again.

  • Annotated with a bonus biography of Ernest Shackleton
  • Illustrations included
  • Large Print Edition Available

Timed with the outbreak of World War I, this ill-fated expedition is something to behold. The original plan was to have two teams work their way across the frozen wastelands of Antarctica. That never came to fruition for either team. Then, after endless months stuck on ice floes, Shackleton and a rag-tag team set out in a small open boat across the open ocean in an attempt to save everyone. The unlikely end is something to behold.

“At midnight I was pacing the ice, listening to the grinding floe and to the groans and crashes that told of the death-agony of the Endurance, when I noticed suddenly a crack running across our floe right through the camp.”

The fate of Ernest Shackleton, the Endurance, and her crew have been studied for over a century. Shackleton’s exploits have been turned into movies. His leadership style has been adapted into training programs for major corporations.

Why buy a Sastrugi Press Classic?

Sastrugi Press is dedicated to producing the best possible classic book editions for our customers. We take the original text and completely re-typeset it. We design our books for readability, visual appeal, and unrivaled enjoyment.

Many of our competitors sell you low-quality photocopies. They use cheap OCR software to convert the text, causing many typographical errors. This creates a terrible reader experience. Sastrugi Press does not and will never scan and paste.

We value your time and business. We use the industry standard software Adobe Indesign CC to create high-performance books. This expensive process produces easier reading than the original antique metal typeset printing. You will be proud to have our books on your shelves.

All of our large print classic books are printed in a 16-point font that is highly legible and easily readable.

Purchase quality. Purchase a Sastrugi Press Classic.

Sir Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) is one of the last, most lauded polar explorers from the Great Age of Exploration.
